Abstract: It is not possible to mention my art without mentioning important exhibitions which have made possible the transition from antique mosaics to contemporary mosaics in Turkey. This is important in the name of determining where I stand in the historical progression. The important exhibitions opened during these time periods have elevated the art of mosaic from the antique value to contemporary merit. These exhibitions have been an obstacle to the death of this significant art and have formed the backround that made it possible to continue into contemporary works of art while standing firmly on the past. How does something which belongs in the past go on to the future? With the exception of the mosaics and frescoes which reflect the restrained and religious level of the middle ages, the issue of the resolution of the subjects of architecture and art in their entirety was in the beginning, fragmented and in a state of confusion in the western countries and Turkey. In the end, the developmental process was realized with the Bauhaus School. This school, founded in 1919 and aiming to join fine arts and architecture, re-opened the doors to mosaic, which gives pictures an extended life.
